No, you need a hug! A Canadian toddler named Tiana has pulled at the heartstrings of millions of people, thanks to a new viral video. In it, the little girl pleads with her parents to remain friends following their divorce.

During the nearly three-minute plea, Tiana looks directly at her mom while speaking passionately about the subject. She sits on a staircase and uses several hand gestures to get her point across.

"Mom, are you ready to be his friend? Try not to be that high up to be friends. I want everything to be low, okay? Just try your best. I don't want you and my dad to be replaced and meanies again. I want you and my dad to be placed, settled, and to be friends," she says in the clip. "I'm not trying to be mean. I just want everyone to be friends. And if I can be nice, I think all of us can be nice too. I'm not trying to be mean, but I'm trying to do my best in my heart."

The emotional video was posted by Tiana's mom, Cherish Sherry, on her Facebook page on Wednesday, Sept. 16. It's already garnered over 10 million views.

"I want you, mom, my dad, everyone to be friends. I want everyone to be smiling!" Tiana adds in the clip. "I think you can do it! I think you can settle your mean heights down to short heights a little. I'm not trying to be mean. I'm not trying to be a bully. I'm trying to be steady on the floor."

She continues: "My heart is something. Everyone else's heart is something too. And if we live in a world where everyone is being mean – everyone's going to be a monster in the future."
